The Espresso Martini is a fairly young cocktail and dates from the eighties. The cocktail originated when a woman walked into a London bar and asked for ”something that wakes me up and then fucks me up.”
The bartender then brewed an espresso and added vodka and some sweets. The Espresso Martini was born. This version has a slightly more intense flavor due to the addition of Mandarin Napoleon and chocolate liqueur. Serve in a martini glass with a slice of orange and three coffee or chocolate beans.
